Nolin, Eka Merta Sari, Pujungan . Pupuan Vol. 1 (Aneka 1005)

Here's a remarkable tape documenting the mysterious Nolin ensemble from the Pujungan village in the highlands of west Bali. These guys make deeply wonderful music; Kruyuk Siap, the tune that opens side A, exemplifies this - check out the wooden clapper kotekan that appears at about the 9:30 mark! I've searched quite a bit, but have yet to unearth any information about nolin. It would be great to know more. Please leave a comment if you have any info - I'd be much obliged!
